John Hinkle (1842-1909) was the third child of Samuel and Sarah Nancy P. Cowan Hinkle and the older brother of Lavica. John was married to Mary Jennie Shoemaker (1846-1923). They had seven children. Guy, Charles and Nancy are mentioned in other articles of Lavica's scrap book.

John and Jenny lived in the house next door to George and Lavica. The two houses were mirror images of each other. Both houses still exist side by side today.

Lavica and Jennie were probably good friends and shared much between themselves. Jennie died in Florida. Many of this family liked to spend winters in Florida and some retired there.
